Rentec Direct

Take a look at what we’re currently working on at Rentec. Please share your ideas and stories to help us build a product that best fits your needs.

How can we make the Rentec Direct property management software and tenant screening platform better?

  1. Simplify Printing Landlord Statements

    Make it more user friendly to print and save landlord statements. Right now they have to be done 1 at a time. I would like to be able to Print all landlords at one time and all get their very own statement. Maybe even be able to email each statement to the landlords directly through Rentec Direct.

  2. Invoices

    Make invoices look like what they appear on the screen. Many tenants do not understand the generated invoices that are off of rentec.

  3. Notification when text is received

    It would be immensely helpful if some type of text or email notification could be received on our cell when a Rentec text came in. Right now, there is no way of knowing that a tenant sent a text unless the Owner/manager logs into Rentec. Or if our own cell number could be used for texting. I would be willing to pay extra for this service. I am presently missing important messages because this feature is not available.

  5. Be able to enter all applicants and link to apartments along with being able to attach documents including the screening results.

    I would like to link any applications I receive to the apartments while I am going through the screening process. It would also be great to link the screening results to the applicant and be able to make notes regarding the applicant and if they are approved or denied, along with a copy of the adverse action letter.

  6. Application Fees

    Would be great if I could turn off the option to post application fees to the property, yet still be able to run a report at the end of my monthly billing cycle to see the amount of application fees collected between custom dates (in order to account for that income monthly).

  8. Landlord Home Insurance Tracking

    Add ability to track Landlord insurance the same way we can track Renter's insurance. Our state requires the Landlord add us to their policy as additional insured and tracking in one system versus an external process would be great to ensure all Landlord's are in compliance.

  9. Additional Tenants on Approved application and lease

    When you start a lease for tenants that both tenants be on the lease NOT JUST ONE. I should NOT have to add the second tenant!!! Its should be done automatically. That goes for the same when you approve an application. If there are two people on the application and you approve it it should approve BOTH APPLICATIONS AND PUT BOTH PEOPLE INTO THE COMPUTER. I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO ADD THE SECOND TENANTS INFO IN ORDER TO GET THEM INTO THE COMPUTER.

  10. UNPAID EXPENSES link to Undeposited funds

    Add in Undeposited Funds Acc a
    "Print a check" button also,
    This would be handy to be able to use this account as:
    UNDEPOSITED FUNDS or
    UNPAID EXPENSES
    With this option we could consolidate small expenses applied for a single vendor in several WORKORDERs-(Apply expense to propery), send the expenses to UNPAID, and when its time to pay them, cut the check for sum of all
    this is different workorders, diferrent properties, SAME vendor.

  13. data field insert for docusign lease

    Add a data field in the forms area to INSERT "partial months rent" thats calculated by a tenants move-in date. Currently this cannot be done! It makes creating a "move in costs" section of a lease (or move-in letter with a itemized costs" breakdown very laborious and error prone. Your application calculates partial month or pro-rated rent, getting that information into a document (lease or otherwise) would be huge. The competitive apps can do it!

  14. Remove underlining from data fields in Forms

    Using data fields to craft a form letter that can be easily emailed to a tenant is really slick. However, the result is a piece of correspondence that has every merged field underlined. If you've created a letter from scratch - Date field, Tenant Name, address, greeting...some body text and signature line, ALL are underlined, while the rest of the letter is not. It looks REALLY unprofessional. Please fix this issue.

  16. Tenant statement enhancement - add a column to separate debit from credit.

    The tenant statement looks nice on screen but when it is printed out or saved in a PDF file, the debit and credit are combined into one column that makes it not easy see the credits/payments. Please make the saved/printed report the same as that on the screen.

  18. Recurring transaction with multiple items

    Each month I write a check to a vendor who services multiple properties for one owner. It would be nice to have the ability to create a recurring expense transaction with multiple line items.

  19. Splitting income/expenses per sub unit.

    I have owners complain that the portal owner statements do not split up income/expenses for individual units in multi-unit properties. This can be very confusing and I have to pull an operating statement for them. Please make a change to allow the owner to see sub unit accounting. Thanks.

  20. Late fee charge

    The North Carolina Board of Realtors does not allow us to charge a late fee on the entire balance owed. We can only charge a late fee against the rent due for that month, not previous balances or any other charges. Rentec does not have an option to do this. It should.
